Plumbing Stanley Kubrick

In which sci-fi author Ian Watson discusses his time working with Stanley Kubrick on the film A.I. Artificial Intelligence. Kubrick died before he got the chance to direct the film; Steven Spielberg brought his own version to the screen some years later.

Among the many gems to be found in Watson’s memoir is this:

I had written a novel entitled Inquisitor set in the wacky far-future world of Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000; he wanted a pre-publication printout right away.  “Who knows, Ian?” he mused.  “Maybe this is my next movie?”

Yes, we nearly got Stanley Kubrick’s Warhammer 40,000.
